This is the last lesson that we will be recapping our learning from Year 1. 

Today we are looking at arrays.


We can make arrays by making equal groups and building them up in columns and rows. 


What is the difference between columns and rows? 


Can you make your own arrays at home using objects around your home?

You could use lego, beads, counters, money or toys. 

Make Arrays

Please practise this week's spellings by logging on to Spelling Shed. If you have any issues logging in please email me smiley


This week we are learning about contractions - an apostrophe is used where a letter or letters would be if the words were written in full. 


Today I would like you to write sentences which include each of this week's spellings. Please see the document below. 

Sentence Checklist


LQ: What is a contraction? 


Revise: Recap on verbs and nouns. 




Revise contractions  they have met before; I’m, she’s, it’s. 

 is, is not, isn't  (The meaning has been changed to the opposite).

Explain how the words are pushed together and the apostrophe shows where the ‘o’ is left out. Can they think of a sentence containing isn’t ? 



 are not, aren't, was not, wasn't, were not, weren't 

Match the words with the contractions. What happens to the word when it is contracted? (The words are joined together and the o is left out.)



See Day 1 of the resource pack.


Below, you will find our topic work for the week. 


For those children than are still coming into school, please can I ask that you use the days of the week to guide your learning, as you will also be doing these tasks in school on the days that you are in.   


For those learning at home full-time, you can choose which day you would like to do each activity smiley
